This is the full 10-5-08 episode of the Labor Express Radio program.
On this episode we discuss the growing financial crisis and the $700 billon dollar bailout package passed by the congress on Friday with Ross Eisenbrey, Vice-President of the Economic Policy Institute (EPI). EPI is one of the country’s leading progressive economic think tanks and I asked Eisenbrey to talk about what the bailout means for the nation’s working people.
The episode also includes an interview with the Midwest field organizer for Jobs with Justice Fran Tobin about the Employee Free Choice Act and audio from a rally held by Jobs with Justice outside the Federal Reserve Bank in downtown Chicago demanding a bailout out for Main Street not Wall Street.
